"Last year 2,197 visitors came from around the world to visit Menlo Innovations, a small software company in Ann Arbor, Michigan. They made the trek not to learn about technology, but to witness a radically different approach to workplace culture- one intentionally designed to produce joy.

With joy as the explicit goal for Menlo's staff, as well as their clients and the people who use the products they create, Sheridan and his team changed everything about how the company was run.
